SOLVING GAS LAW PROBLEMS
BOYLE’S LAW CHARLES LAW GAY-LUSSAC’S LAW THE COMBINED GAS LAW THE IDEAL GAS LAW DALTON’S LAW GRAHAM’S LAW OF DIFFUSION

GAS LAW FORMULAE BOYLE’S LAW: P1 x V1 = P2 x V2 CHARLES LAW:
V1 / T1 = V2 / T2 GAY-LUSSAC’S LAW: P1 / T1 = P2 / T2 KELVIN = DEGREES CELSIUS COMBINED GAS LAW (P1 x V1 ) / T1 = (P2 x V2 ) / T2 DALTON’S LAW P TOTAL = PGAS A P GAS B P GAS C + P …….

GAS LAW FORMULAE (CONT’D)
DALTON’S LAW (CONT’D) PGAS A = (N GAS A / N TOTAL) x PTOTAL AVOGADRO’S HYPOTHESIS “EQUAL VOLUMES OF DIFFERENT GASES, AT THE SAME TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE, CONTAIN EQUAL MOLES” UNIVERSAL GAS LAW P x V = N x R x T

GAS LAW FORMULAE (CONT’D)
GRAHAM’S LAW OF DIFFUSION v2 / v1 = ( m1 / m2)1/2 v = average molecular velocity m = molecular mass ONE MOLE OF ANY GAS OCCUPIES 22.4 LITERS AT STP CONDITIONS Liters divide by moles Liters multiply by moles

SOLVING BOYLE’S LAW PROBLEMS
WHAT IS THE VOLUME OF 500 ML OF NEON GAS AT 2.0 ATMS OF PRESSURE WHEN ITS PRESSURE IS CHANGED TO 2090 MM OF HG ? SOLUTION: P1 x V1 = P2 x V2 , P1 = 2.0 ATM V1 = 500 ML, P2 = MM / 760 = 2.75 ATM V2 = ( P1 x V1) / P2 V2 = (2.0 x 500) / = 364 ML NOTE: BOYLE’S LAW IS INVERSE, AS PRESSURE INCREASES, VOLUME DECREASES.

SOLVING BOYLE’S LAW PROBLEMS

SOLVING COMBINED LAW PROBLEMS
WHAT IS THE NEW PRESSURE OF 850 ML OF ARGON AT 1092 K AND 5.0 ATMS WHEN IT IS COOLED TO 273 C AND REDUCED TO A VOLUME OF 300 ML ? SOLUTION: (P1 x V1 ) / T1 = (P2 x V2 ) / T2, P1 = 5.0 ATM, V2 = 300 ML T1 = K, V1 = 850 ML T2 = ( ) = 546 K P2 = (P1 x V1 x T2 ) / (V2 x T1 ) P2 = (5.0 x x 546) / (300 x 1092) = 7.1 ATM

THE AVERAGE MOLECULAR SPEED OF AN OXYGEN MOLECULE AT A SPECIFIC TEMPERATURE IS 500 M/SEC. WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SPEED OF A NEON MOLECULE AT THE SAME TEMPERATURE ? v2 / v1 = ( m1 / m2)1/2 MOLAR MASS OXYGEN = 32.0, MOLAR MASS NEON = 20.0 m1 = 32, m2 = 20.0, v1 = 500 M / SEC v2 = ( m1 / m2)1/2 (v1) = (32.0/ 20.0) 1/2 (500) =632 M/SEC

SOLVING GRAHAM’S LAW PROBLEMS
WHAT IS MOLECULAR MASS OF SUBSTANCE X, IF AT A SPECIFIC TEMPERATURE THE SPEED OF A NITROGEN MOLECULE IS 800 M/SEC. THE AVERAGE SPEED OF THE UNKNOWN GAS IS 650 M/SEC AT THE SAME TEMPERATURE ? v2 / v1 = ( m1 / m2)1/2 (squaring both sides gives) m1 / m2 = v22 / v12 (solving for m1 gives) m1 = (v22 / v12) x m2 m2 = Molar mass of Nitrogen = 28.0 v2 = velocity of Nitrogen = 800 m / s v1 = velocity of unknown gas = 650 m /s m1 = (8002 / 6502) x 28 = 42.4
